U.S. teen pop star Drake Bell has fuelled speculation he's Britney Spears' new man by joking about the 'romance' on his website.
The former Drake + Josh star, who turns 21 next week (27Jun07), was so amused when a fan told him all about a tabloid article in Germany that linked him with Spears, he felt compelled to respond to the online rumours.
He explains, "A German tabloid put out that I was dating Britney Spears. It was between me and Howie Day and there was this big spread and blog on how I'm dating Britney.
"I kinda went on there and went, 'Yeah, it's totally true, keep it up.' We are dating right now... Not really."
